14. Computers being sold on the street
Point made, then. Giving them portables to keep in the school is fairly wasteful. Also, there are reports now of computers being sold on the street - if they can be taken out, they are stolen and sold. Again, this is one of those things done by the government in a stupid fashion, wasting resources they don't have. Those of you who naively and romantically defend this type of spending just don't understand what it's like in the bulk of Venezuelan public schools - they are lousy, poorly maintained, education is low quality, and the least they worry about is having computers. You are so so out of touch with reality.
